Don't worry, one day you will be art. (Tara Dougans)

I love it when artist use all their techniques and talent to draw ugly people… I mean in this time where really beautiful people are taking over Cinema, Magazines and T.V. it is good to know that, we, the fugly and casually misshapen can still have a space on art. We will always have radio, UPS advertisements and blogs, but to invade museums and galleries is a great achievement!

I am sure there is a really fancy way of calling this type of art, something politically correct and artsy, that makes it sound less about drawing unsightly characters and more about a social point of view or a confrontation with canons; like Culture of the Common or Awakening of the Rare, but I don’t know the correct name*, because I never went to art school and I am too poor to buy those hip magazines. Sorry.

So I will tell you what I do know: Her name is Tara Dougans and she is Canadian; she is more or less a baby, only 24 years old!!! You can find her Web Page here and her Flickr Photostream here. And I love her work.

Again, if you want more of her go to her Web Page (Here) or the Flickr Photostream (Here).

* I will research it, I promise.
